Only 6 miles from Conway, NH & 2 miles from downtown Fryeburg is this gem of a property. You'll drive a mile into the woods & into a fairy tale-like vacation spot complete with rolling green lawn. Stone steps leading to a white, sandy beach & the warm, clean waters of Lovewell Pond, stocked with trout, bass, pickerel. Boats/jet-ski can be launched from public boat-launch (2 miles away). Enjoy the views, BBQ on two outdoor picnic tables, roast marshmallows in the fire-pit, sit on one of the many Adirondack chairs made available to you on the property. Have a BBQ on the grill & dine on the picnic tables in the backyard patio. Check out the glorious views of Pleasant Mt., Mount Washington & Jockey Cap from the lake.

A spacious, open cottage with hardwood floors throughout, AC/cable/WIFI/DVD awaits you indoors with two dining tables (seating 5 & 10+), two sitting areas with panoramic lake-views, master bedroom (Queen), newly renovated 2nd Bedoom (Queen) and newly renovated 3d bedroom (two set of Bunk Beds), & sleeper sofa if needed. Immaculately maintained!! Recent Updates like hardwood floors, dishwasher, newly painted kitchen cabinets, newly renovated 1/2 bath make home feel fresh & new. A shed houses a full refrigerator/freezer to store extra food just outside the house. There is a WASHING MACHINE AND DRYER available to you as well as a DISHWASHER. Two car overhead garage and plenty of parking available. House is stocked with all the essentials - bedding, pillows, blankets, towels, and board games/puzzles. A very large, private, outdoor shower is where most guests will enjoy cleaning up from the afternoon fun although there is another full shower and half bath inside.

Ideal Summer retreat for families with children & water toys or the lake-lover in search of warm water, mountain views, boating/canoeing, hiking, & fishing. Access to newly constructed rail trail allows for easy biking, running/walking into downtown area or all the way to the Maine welcome center. Free access to the Fryeburg Academy track and gym only 2 miles from home.

Exit this lakefront cottage and step foot onto green grass that rolls into access to a spectacular sandy beach which extends slowly out into the lake -- perfect for small children who can wade out 30-40 ft before it drops off. Find a huge boulder on the beach for sitting or climbing. A public boat launch is available at the far end of the lake. Lovewell Pond is special with lovely mountain views and access into the Soco River. Plan a canoe or kayak trip from a point in the Saco & paddle into the pond and straight to the front beach of the house. A canoe comes with rental as well as a peddle boat.

The house comes equipped with dishwasher, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, and gas fired outdoor grill. Bonus is AC available in each room for hot, humid nights. A second full size outdoor fridge/freezer is available to help with drinks and food brought for the week. There is a hammock on the property as well as a lake-side outdoor fire pit for smores-making at the end of the day and Adirondack chairs on the property for relaxing. A covered 2 car parking garage is available as is an outdoor 2 car lot. Additional parking available along the house.

All the amenities you'll need are 2 miles away in Fryeburg from high end dining (Oxford House) to more casual and inexpensive beer and wings at 302West BBQ. There are 3 bountiful farmer's markets within a few miles of the house offering fresh produce, pies, and pre-made foods as well. North Conway, located 10 minutes away, offers so much: (amusement parks like Storyland, tax-free outlet shopping, endless choices of restaurants/bars, golf) and White Mountain activities (hiking, rivers, biking, natural attractions like Diana's Bath, Cathedral Ledge, natural falls, rivers). The Int'l School of Mnt Climbing in N.Conway hosts guided hikes/climbs.Bridgton offers skiing, a drive-in theater, and a cute town. Or you may choose to stay home, fire up the BBQ and roast marshmallows in the fire-pit by the lake. Activities abound on the lake and locally. October offers corn mazes and the Fryeburg Fair.

Whatever you seek, whether it be fun and activities or peace and tranquility, you'll find it at this true gem of a property. There is something for everyone.

Wonderful home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay! Marla was lovely to deal with from the first day I inquired. The house was extremely clean and well kept. You could tell the owners take great pride in it. The kitchen was very well stocked and then some! We used the outdoor grill a couple days and there were plenty of utensils for that as well. The lawn area from the house to the lake was meticulously maintained with plenty of chairs for everyone. We used the canoe and paddle boat and brought our own kayak as well. We had lots of fun on the dock too. We didn't use the tv once (which means it was a perfect week!!) we played several games and completed lots of puzzles at the large dining table. The views in the morning toward the pond were simply beautiful! Thank you for sharing your home!!

Owner's Response: Delighted you and your family enjoyed the house and lakeside property! Whether it's enjoying a coffee under the canopy of the birch trees while listening to the loons call to each other, swimming/boating/kayaking/fishing in the clean, warm waters or watching the sky and lake turn pink at sunset while sitting by the camp fire in the evening, this lake house has something for everyone to enjoy. It's our favorite place in the world and we are delighted to be able to share it with some special families each year! Book early and often ... All our best!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

It is my pleasure to write a review of this fabulous property in Fryeburg, Maine! From the moment we expressed interest in renting, the property owners answered our questions promptly, provided accurate and extensive information on the property and the area, and were absolutely wonderful to work with! When my family arrived at the location, the house was spotless and had all the supplies we needed (towels, fans, bathroom/kitchen supplies, life jackets, etc) to get our vacation underway. The expansive front lawn was perfect for all the kids to play frisbee, tag, catch. etc. and the small beach area and floating dock made for great water play and swimming. I can't say enough great things about this spot!

This one has it all!

  • 5 of 5

The home is very spacious, open, clean & tastefully decorated. It's actually a bit larger than the photos represent. The view from the dining room is amazing with all the windows facing the pond. The view can be seen from the kitchen & living room. My husband was inspired to work on his book & set his laptop in the bay window in the dining room which overlooked the rolling, sprawling lawn & pond with a view of Mt Tom. The private beach has a large sandy area that isn't shown in the pictures & the mountain views are even better from the water, as you get to see the mountains towards the Kangamangus Highway. There is a floating dock offshore, canoe & paddle boat. The water is shallow gradual entry (great for small children) & sandy bottom with sparse rocks. Depth is about 6ft just up to the raft & drops deeper on the mountain side. The yard is landscaped with beautiful plantings, tiki torches, fire pit, multiple sitting areas, a hammock, a swing & even a slack line rope tied between 2 trees which my daughter & I took turns competing to see who could balance/walk the furthest. There is a spacious, private outdoor shower. The master bedroom is very large with a firm but comfortable bed, a washer machine, direct access to the full bathroom & is separated from the other 2 bedrooms by the living room. (privacy) All the beds were comfortable. I literally have not one complaint or suggestion. This is the perfect home for families because there was enough room for everyone to spread out. I've been coming to this area since I was a child & have been renting on homeaway.com for about 12 years now & this is by far the best one yet!

Lovely home and amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming home! If you want a quiet, but outdoor vacation, this is the place to stay. Our family enjoyed canoeing and paddle boating on the pond, as well as biking on the rail trail. We were also able to spend a lot of time in New Hampshire, because Conway is only a short drive from this house. The local Maine Weston & Sherman Farm Markets are a must for your produce needs! Will definitely be back to stay on Lovewell Pond!!

Great summer get away!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most marvelous time at this lake house. The home was immaculate, and had everything needed for an enjoyable stay. The outdoor shower is fantastic, and the second frig in the shed was very handy. The house is spacious, allowing all 10 of us to feel at home and not crowded. The beach is wonderful, loved the paddle boat and everyone enjoyed swimming at the dock. Used the canoe too, and it was fun. Enjoyed making s'mores over the fire pit in the evening, watching the loons on the pond swimming by, and even saw an eagle!! The house is located close to farms for fresh vegetables, close to StoryLand for the children and close to wonderful hiking trails--some in our group went to Crawford Notch for that experience. We found it to be a perfect place to relax, enjoy the outdoors, and spend a great time with family. We are looking forward to another stay there.

Gorgeous house, beautiful gem of a pond

  • 5 of 5

The listing description is perfectly accurate (location, layout, amenities, etc.) , but this spot is even better than described. If you want to experience lakeside life in Maine with mountain views and quiet neighbors, this is perfect. For us, two adults in late 50's with an eleven year old labrador retriever, and tons of family in the Conway area eager to drop in, the building, yard, and water access were heaven.

We regularly had half a dozen people for dinner at the long dining room table facing the water view. We also used the double sized picnic table outside for lunch. Each day we swam, jogged up to and along Mountain Rail Trail, walked the dog along the fire lane, used the canoe provided beside the beach, fished and water skied from our boat that we put on the mooring provided,. We gaped at an eagle snatching a fish right off shore, laughed at our 10 year old niece and friend enjoying the two swings, relaxed in hammock, grilled and cooked in the kitchen feasts every night, then made smores over campfire in fire pit, cheered on the US Women's Soccer team to victory in the World Cup on the huge flat screen tv. The wifi was excellent both inside the house and outside on Adirondack deck chairs. One night we used the AC, otherwise just fans: even the pickiest were comfortable and all slept well. In short, the week evaporated.

The house and grounds were spotless and carefully maintianed. Marla's emails were to the point, helpful, and friendly. Relatives who visited loved the place, and we hope to be back.
